Caribbean and North-American trained chef teaching international fusion cuisine, located in Mississauga.

Methodology

My teaching methods are through description, explanation and demonstration. I focus heavily on proper knife/tool handling techniques to begin with, in order to avoid injury. I move onto methods and effects of various types of cooking as well as food preparation and execution.

Background

I'm a young chef with 10+ years experience. Most of my professional experience is with French cuisine, however my Caribbean background heavily influences my dishes and techniques. I have a degree and diploma in Culinary Arts and Culinary Management respectively, and have received advanced hospitality training at the Walt Disney World Resorts.
